USA/UK/QAT/CAN | 2019 | dir. Hassan Fazili and Emilie Mahdavian | doc

In 2015, a death threat from the Taliban saw Afghan director Hassan Fazili, his wife Fatima Hussaini, also a filmmaker, and their two daughters Nargis (11) and Zahra (6), flee from their homeland to distant Europe in search of safety. En route, during long and uncertain stays in various refugee camps, they draw strength from documenting their difficult situation on mobile phones. Despite adversities and setbacks, they never once lose their humanity.
